Various projects will be presented that may be at any stage of the process – from the initial idea to financing or actual broadcasting. The program includes several presentations by the biggest European and regional production companies such as Firefly Productions, 24 sata and others. Also, Cine Link Drama will present content by BH Telecom and hold a showcase of selected projects.

Promoting creativity and TV industry in the region

NEM Zagreb is where representatives of FTA television, pay-tv channels and streaming services, as well as producers, directors, actors, screenwriters, production groups and other content creators gather to communicate. Under the motto “All about content creation”, the event focuses on creativity in the television industry relevant to countries of Central and Eastern Europe.

Panels, presentations, premiere screenings of new TV series, education and unique networking opportunities among television professionals are all part of every edition of New Europe Market (NEM). NEM Zagreb focuses on the CEE region and countries with limited production capability in the region, which can benefit from connecting with AV professionals and decision makers from other European countries. During the weeks preceding the event, NEM Zagreb will offer a workshop supported by Script Angel with Hayley McKenzie to help creative people improve their skills under her guidance as coach.
